Using REPREVE also reduces energy consumption. That’s by offsetting the need to use newly refined crude oil for production. The technology meets all Ford design and comfort requirements. Especially to help ensure the Focus Electric. I mean and other vehicles meet the company’s high performance standards.
“We aimed to make the Focus Electric the most overall sustainable vehicle available to consumers, from using clean technology to overall vehicle efficiency,” said Kordich.
The Focus Electric, Ford’s first all-electric passenger car, started production in December 2011 at Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Mich. When full production is under way in March, the car’s seat fabric could contain plastic bottles collected at NAIAS or CES.
Ford’s “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” commitment is part of the company’s broader global sustainability strategy. All to reduce its environmental footprint. Then at the same time accelerating the development. That’s of advanced, fuel-efficient vehicle technologies around the world.
Currently Ford vehicles are approximately 90 percent recyclable at end of life. By using recycled content in its vehicles. Also and ensuring its parts are recyclable. So Ford is leading the industry in recycling efforts. Ford’s goal is to have its vehicles be 100 percent recyclable.
In 2009, Ford mandated that fabric suppliers use a minimum of 25 percent recycled content for all 2009 and beyond model year vehicles. Since then, 37 different fabrics. All meeting the requirements have been developed. Then incorporated into Ford vehicles.
Examples include soy foam seat cushions and head restraints using wheat straw-filled plastic. Also castor oil foam in instrument panels and recycled resins for underbody systems. Finally recycled yarns on seat covers and natural-fiber plastic for interior components.
